db18 ss bonnet hinge etc

Post by Db n j » Mon Jan 21, 2019 6:44 pm

On Friday, we moved the Special Sports from its resting place of the last 7 years, into the next door garage cum workshop, so its the first time I have
been able to take a detailed look at what we have got (the front of the car had been stripped, with new woodwork etc done, but whatever we got came in
boxes piled into the inside).

Given the years we have had The Duchess, we have been collecting parts, so the so called "difficult to find" bits are to hand. However, there is a growing list
of stuff we need, so any help / leads most welcome.

1) Bonnet hinge (not same as DB18, Consort or Hooper)
also looking for
2) Radiator fan cowl (not same as Consort)
3) Water drain plug / pipework from Block (underneath the manifolds), (same as Consort)
4) Water drain plug for Radiator (saem as Consort)
5) Connecting pipe between Rocker Box and Air Cleaner (not same as Consort)
6) Radiator cap (top of the radiator)
7) Glass for Passenger Door

Many thanks

Hi,
Yes, we have a spare, yours for the price of the postage,
or, if you are not in a hurry, you could collect from the Restoration Show at Stoneleigh?(March)
Somebody from the East Mids could take it for you.

Best Wishes,

Helen :?:

Hello Db nj,
As Helen has explained, I have found a radiator cap.
She said that we could arrange for you to collect it at the Practical Classics Restoration Show, but by mistake said that the show was at Stoneleigh.
It is taking place at the NEC, Birmingham.

Please send me an e mail contact, which will enable me to send a photo of the radiator cap.

Best wishes,
Andrew

Hi David,
I emailed you details for the bonnet hinges a while ago.Did you get the email? I haven't heard anything.
Did you find the quoted price too high? They have been blasted and painted and look like new.
Cheers
